Recent bombings of Syrian hospitals seem to be part of a military tactic and could amount to war crimes, UN human rights spokesman Rupert Colville says.
There are clear indications that the attacks were not carried out by mistake, the spokesman of the UN high commissioner for human rights says a day after nearly 50 people were killed when missiles hit Syrian hospitals and schools.
"The sheer scale of the attacks shows that it may well be a tactic of war," he tells reporters.
"The deliberate targeting of hospitals may constitute a war crime," says Colville, sticking to the UN rights office's policy of leaving definite legal judgements to courts.
